Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J. K. Rowling is the sixth book in the Harry Potter series. The events of Harry’s life are beginning to spiral a little more out of control and things at Hogwarts are continuing to get stranger than ever before. Now Harry has uncovered something that just may help him pass his potions class for the first time ever, but along the way it just might cost someone their life and it just might cause irreparable harm to a friendship at the same time.


Who is the Half-Blood Prince?

The Half-Blood Prince has left something for Harry though not intentionally of course. Instead, he’s left a book behind that doesn’t seem like anything special to anyone who’s seen it before. It seems like a worn out potions book until it’s assigned to Harry for his class. Once he opens it he begins to see the true merits of the book and begins to wonder if it could really be his big ticket to success. The only thing he wonders is who was the half-blood prince that scrawled his name in the front cover of this book?


There’s more at work however than just a new textbook even though that textbook could cause more damage than anyone could imagine. With secrets, spells and tips tucked away throughout its pages it just might spill more than it wants to about its previous owner and once Harry finds out who the owner is, he just might learn more about that person than he ever knew before. It’s going to be an interesting year for Harry and for his friends as they attempt to piece together the secrets wandering through the school and attempt to uncover what’s going to happen next.


Still there’s not only sinister events happening in Hogwarts but sweet ones as well. Harry, Ron and Hermione have each found a special someone and those relationships will play a large part in what each of them will do when everything comes down to the wire. Death is going to come to some and destruction to others. There will be pain and suffering and there will most definitely be sides chosen in this book. Someone will have to step forward and make a stand if the good side is going to win, because when push comes to shove, they just might not have enough power to keep them going.

    Rowling may have outdone herself yet again with Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. J. K. Rowling’s series has always been one that captured my attention but it started to seem like maybe the series was winding down. And then I read this book. She really brings all the characters to the forefront of the action and puts you right into everything as well. There’s so much going on between school and fledgling romances and of course battling a dark lord. But it’s definitely more than that as well since Harry doesn’t really know who to trust or what to do about things like his special potions book.

    I was absolutely amazed with Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling. This book seems to really come out of the back and really pull you into the story in a new way. As Harry is getting older things are changing and the story starts to get a little darker but that’s definitely no reason to stop reading. The Half-Blood Prince was not the one that keeps you completely interested but some of the information you find out about the past just might shock you a little bit. Harry is definitely up for a showdown in this one.
